I'd suggest an IPad.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

I just got my friend a decent Acer laptop with a 2.1 Ghz AMD dual core and a dedicated video card for around 450.

400 to 500 is a much better budget goal to be honest. At that price range you start to find some laptops that are capable of some light gaming. My 300 dollar laptop *barely* runs Minecraft, (HD3000 integrated video) and if I'm outside in the forest or in a town it slows down like 15-20 fps. Underground it runs closer to 60fps though.

If you must insist on the 300-400 dollar budget, I guess this is your best bet.

The AMD graphics card isn't much better than the Ivy Bridge integrated video (HD4000) but at least it has HDMI out, which a lot of budget laptops skimp on. Also the Samsung touchpad and overall build quality seems decent for the price.
